Blending the past with the present, this well-researched study delves into the mystery surrounding the forgotten Battle of Beersheba, a gloriously successful battle that led to the liberation of Jerusalem and the fall of the Ottoman Empire. This record recounts how Australian and New Zealand Army Corps captured Beersheba and helped to pave the way for the founding of Israel. Documenting the last light-horse charge ever made in battle through soldiers' diaries and descendents, this history details the story of a unique conflict during World War I, as well as the Australian and international significance of the Battle of Beersheba.
